obama will be in denver and madison, wisconsin, and joe biden will be in iowa. obviously, a lot going on in the final -- and the final preparations for the debate and just right after. >> yeah, and, you know, you talk about the zingers which is so interesting. clearly, each candidate wants to at least make his mark and obviously say something memorable for all the voters there. romney running with paul ryan, he was on the sunday talk shows today. we haven't heard much out of vice president biden lately. we know you've been traveling with him. when he's on the record he says a lot of interesting things. i guess he says a lot of things when he's off the record with you guys. >> a lot of things we won't talk about right now. as you just said, i have been traveling extensively with the vice president, but publicly he's out with these new attack lines against his republican opponent basically saying one of the most memorable of late is the romney plan will basically increase the tacks on social security benefits for seniors. the romney campaign obviously saying that's flat out false. they'
until november. >> my advice is for joe biden. do not try to overwhen sate by going in there charging like the bulls of pam plo na in your debate. the only thing that may be worse than an overly passive barack obama is an overly aggressive joe biden. >> a bull in a china shop maybe. >> maybe. listen, if he's hard to control when he's on script, just imagine him unscripted in a debate. >> but the american people still like him. >> yeah. >> still like him. >> he's a likable guy. >> he's a regular joe. >> i think all republicans should love him because he is the gift that keeps on giving. >> so is paul ryan to some extent. go ahead, governor. >> it's been exactly one year since steve jobs passing. and my unsolicited advice today is for all of the mavericks in america, all the people that walked against the crowd, all the people who disagree with everybody in the room, everybody in a classroom that says i don't agree with what's going on here today, the mavericks have made america great. if we lose our mavericks, we lose our edge. this is unsolicited advice for the mavericks, you keep it
not to be nasty with you like joe biden does. that way i would keep it above board. biden is doing more harm than anybody to the president. this guy is shakier to jinga tower. i think mitt romney is doing great. i know everybody else is bummed out. guess what? i have seen the light. he is either even or within the range of error and most of these things for men who has been defied. to say the press swoon over him. they will nitpick my guy out the wazoo. i'm telling you 35 days out this cat is in good shape. whatever is he doing i think he should keep doing it. >> bill: okay. rasmussen has him pretty much tied if you have the margin of error put in. >> that's mind boggling. >> bill: the point is well taken. with the press rooting for the president and with the money that the president has on attack ads for romney still to be close but the problem is in places like ohio and falling behind and ba ba ba ba ba. everybody thinks i'm crazy. down the line. rove, kirsten powers. leslie marshall, the whole bunch. i come out and show a little emotion. you know what? i hope americans know how bad this countr
've forgotten barack obama who actually debated hillary and biden back in the day. it's no drama obama. that's what you've got. he's a great speaker. great orator but there's no passion when he's debating. he gives you the numbers. tells you what he thinks. if we're going to decide the next president on debating skills and style, then we're all in a lot of trouble. >> i'm going do disagree with you, shockingly. >> shocking. >> i'm just going to laugh. >> ross just laughs. we have seen president obama on the campaign trail when he was campaigning against hillary really litigate his point, really make it strongly drive it home. you saw none of that last night. you saw him sort of going along with mitt romney's numbers and realizing he wasn't prepared enough. so i think you're going to have to see a real shift in how he approaches the next debate and that's why he's on the trail today. he's mad. it's like he's got his game face on. >> you have a president who sort of stood there debating a guy who has not been on the campaign trail for the last six months. that mitt romney and those positions w

and a lot of obama/biden signs and not a single romney sign evident anywhere i went in western and central massachusetts all weekend long. i wonder if scott brown could do anything to make himself seem like a nonrepublican nominee at this point that you think would be credible. is there a way to separate himself? >> no. he's trying very hard, but it's not credible. he's sending out e-mails. we have seen the documents where he says, give me money so i can block the obama agenda. elect me so i can be a part of the check on president obama. we also have his voting record. it was noted that of the first 32 votes on breaking filibusters when scott brown was in the senate, he voted with his republican colleagues 30 of the 32 times. he will try hard to dissemble. the notion he hasn't made up his mind for majority leader is one of the least honest things i have heard said. and he's going to have the -- this is going to be his serious bump. he's going to vote to make the most right wingers -- in power, a man who would be destructive in any effort. i don't see any way for him to credibly deny he is
seen that game played before, hillary clinton, al gore, joe biden and whatever. that's political pandering. this isn't pandering, though, sean. this is obama being who he is. he didn't evolve from the frank marshal davis, derek bell teachings, he didn't evolve from his involvement with bill ayers and reverend jeremiah wright. it's time to realize he doesn't pander, while he uses whatever he needs to at the mome, this is his true self. look at his record. look at his 1998 remarks at loyola -- redistribution. look at his remarks on the warren court, not going far enough. he believe this is stuff. he didn't evolve. he has not grown into the governance of this country. he is who he is. >> sean: the media and the dnc spin is, we knew about this speech. this is what they are saying. >> the transcript,-- >>> the transcript is you new. nobody's seen that before. number 2 is, you know, you are hearing and seeing an obama that he -- it seems -- i keep going back -- who is the real obama? that's not the one that speaks to the american people -- >> this is the real obama-- >>> you believe th
